Woods has provided fine fare since I was a Bath Uni student in 1979. It has been a fisrt choice ofr reunion dinners and this 50th birthday was destined to be stage there. We started early with our own wine tasting. This is one of our common bonds for the 14 assembled. We had a dozen wines made in 1967.... More

I went with my girlfriend, the service was great and was looked after. I found food was brilliant, with a large range to choose from. It also changes with the season so always fresh and different. Would recommended to every person in bath, it is also not a chain and the oldest restaurant in Bath.

The menus say that the restaurant was opened in 1979. The decor shows that little has changed internally since then. But.. It's in a lovely, quiet location in the beautiful city of Bath: it was pretty busy for one of the quietest weeks of the year (which usually tells you something); and the cooking was spot on - the prawn...

I just love it. Spacious, joyous food, excellent wine, open & comfy vibe. Meat (or fish) and 4 veg with a French touch: a place to be happy. After drinking their St Estephe, I ended out buying a case. Brilliant Sauternes; the best I've had short of Yquem. I do a lot of eating: there isn't another place like Woodsies... More

We had an early evening meal before going on to a concert, the food was excellent and staff were very welcoming and helpful. They had noticed that it was my birthday and presented us with a surprise cake to go with our coffees!

The local Bath residents association have been holding their Christmas social at Woods for years. It is the perfect venue for a large party. The Brasserie entrance area is ideal for a welcome drinks reception before retiring to the stylish dining room. David and Claude have been running this iconic family restaurant for 37 years and still manage to deliver... More

Wanted a lovely light lunch with pefectly cooked interesting ingredients. Woods hit the spot. Ate in the restaurant. Lovely atmosphere with lots of discrete laughter. We ate from the 2 course menu offered in November. My smoked salmon starter delicious, the pan fried cod served with seasonal vegetables pefect. A glass of rose wine added to the experience. The staff... More

We only had a quick late lunch but impressed by the service and care for a quick stop for warming soup. We are looking forward to having dinner there one evening the next time we visit Bath. I am very envious of anyone living close by to enable frequent trips to this friendly and professional restaurant.

A surprise birthday celebration. As usual the food was absolutely wonderful, the ambiance special and the service great. Although a while since visiting the food was as good as ever with brilliant service, planning to go again shortly. Can't wait to try the Sunday lunch!!! Would certainly recommend for any occasion.

My wife remembered this pleasant restaurant run by a young couple - she French he English - from a visit 30 years ago. The young couple still run it and its better than ever. My expertly cooked Skate Wing has exorcised the memory of the vile offering at Angelus in London last month. Highly recommended in a very competitive environment... More
